Strathbogie Shire Council is developing a Playground and Open Space Strategy to provide strategic direction on the future provision and upgrade of playgrounds and open spaces across Strathbogie Shire over the next 10 years.

The strategy’s scope is limited to all public, freely accessible open spaces including recreation reserves, passive open space/natural reserve, wetlands, community use space, green spaces, lookouts/attractions, trails and walks and playgrounds that are open for public uses in the Council-owned lands.

Playgrounds located on school grounds, kindergartens or those that can only be accessed via a fee have not been considered in the strategy. Similarly, recreational or sports facilities for clubs and events (such as ovals and sports courts) are not addressed. However, the strategy does incorporate areas such as off-leash dog areas.

The strategy is also limited to the towns with existing playgrounds including Avenel, Creightons Creek, Euroa, Longwood, Nagambie, Moglonemby, Ruffy, and Violet Town.

Public submission period closes at 5pm, June 15, 2023.
